  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Use a sharp knife to carefully cut away the peel from the squash. Cut the squash into sticks like French fries. Arrange squash pieces on a baking sheet and season with salt.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, turning the fries over halfway through baking. Fries are done when they are starting to brown on the edges and become crispy.

Actually I would rate 3 1/2 - it had GREAT flavor however I sliced thin like it some recommended for the same amount of time. It was browning nicely but was mushy 30+ min was up. To start I tos...

Toss the squash in a little olive oil first, they will be a lot tastier and not stick to the pan.

These are a great idea for kids and grown ups alike. I've been doing "faux fries" for awhile and have found that the best way to get that crispiness you are looking for is to first toss them in ...

I used butter spray first then seasoned with Mrs. Dash as I cook salt free. Yum. Even the kids liked them.
